SHOFCO Benefit Concert

shofcoFrom SHOFCO:

Come hear 5 great bands play at Westco Cafe this Saturday and support Shofco Wesleyan at the same time!

SHOFCO is a nonprofit started by two Wesleyan alums that provides support for two tuition free schools for girls in the slums of Nairobi, Kenya. It is a grass roots program and provides a network of community driven social services such as a health clinic, a women’s empowerment program and much more!


Devonaire Ortiz & Zach Berkowitz: a short guitar/singer duo

Super Defense: A Syracuse-based lo fi, slacker, indie pop band

Mom: A band named after the person who packs your lunch. Mom has played a lot of concerts recently but still makes time for you kids, because Mom loves nothing more than to make you say “Wow I really like this band”.

Bay Faction: A young, rock trio (drums, bass, guitar/vox) of students from the Berklee School of Music

Swipe Right: “A rock-and-roll band that play sound, exuberant songs about such subjects as sleeping, not being able to sleep, turning the music down, deaf great-grandparents, and 20th-century British modernists.”

Come over to the West College Cafeteria this Wednesday for a buffet of
all things performative (legit all things). Also come perform! Sign
ups at 8:30pm sharp; show at 9pm.

(we’ve pushed everything back by a half hour in case you want to catch
the beginning of the State of the School by President Roth)

For any new souls, we limit sets to 5 minutes, just to ensure that we
can showcase as many acts as possible. Performers: you can do
ANYthing. Music, poetry, comedy, monologues, rants, ants, pants.
Someone came and did some contact juggling one time and it was sick.
Sometimes cool people with cool instruments jam afterwards.

Who’s hungry? SMiLETIME, a modern parable for troubling times, follows a German matriarch who creates the most successful non-chain fast food restaurant in central Ohio. The restaurant skyrockets to fame after appearing on Guy Fieri’s “Diners Drive-Ins and Dives” and plummets to
one-star Yelp reviews after Auntie Stein’s unexplained disappearance. Now, in the face of a special surprise Auntie left behind, the employees of SMiLEtime must deal with their own insecurities as they confront a greater truth.
